The Pacific Northwest (Seattle, WA and Canada) and Quito, Ecuador. Seattle/Canada for the breathtaking nature, Ecuador for the llamas.

Mother Teresa, she lived such an inspirational life that was guided but what she believed in. I would ask her so many questions about how she protected her dream and how she kept going when things were hard.


If you could go back in time, what would you tell your high school self?

“I promise you, it gets better. You are going to learn things about yourself that you never would have imagined and they’ll be the things you love about yourself. Also, listen to mom and dad, don’t get colored contacts because of a boy, stop wearing those jean skirts, and don’t get bangs. Love ya!”
